You can go to La Placita during the day to buy fresh produce, coconut water, fruit shakes. If you want drinks there are plenty of options. At night it turns into a hive of locals and visitors all enjoying themselves. A must see.

Wow! if you can't find something that you like to eat here, you won't find it anywhere. There are so many food choices! It's a bit noisy, so if you were looking for a quiet evening out, this isn't the place.

We understood that Santurce Market was a vibrant and interesting market of the kind found in almost all significant Latin American cities. Although located in a area of San Juan reputed to be on the sketchy side, I had been told that it was definitely...More

Fruit smoothies are the perfect way to start the day. Good variety of local fruits & veggies - some things that you can't find in the grocery store. Watch out there are small cockroaches mixed in the fruit baskets...kind of gross. This market was in...More
